Wonderful stay of 8 nights. Despite a mess up of my booking from Expedia, Debbie accommodated me and helped a lot. She is such a bubbling personality with warm heart, it feels like home away from home. Rooms were clean and cozy, shared bathrooms always available (never had to wait). Healthy breakfast (me being vegetarian I had only cereals, bread, fruit and juice but Debbie was making bacon, eggs & pancake for others with great gusto and passion). Wonderful place to experience.

Debbie McLain was a thoughtful and accommodating hostess who contributed immensely to the wonderful weekend I had in Brooklyn recently. Listening to Eric Lemon was a master class in the history of jazz in Bedford-Stuyvesant and then to be thrilled by the music of the master musicians they assemble was simply magic. Looking forward to my next stay!

Visiting daughter who lives a 10 minute walk away from this lovely historic brownstone. 2 blocks from the subway. Very convenient to Manhattan on express train. Comfortable twin beds in large room on top floor - we got the last room so no double was available. Sink in room. Large full shared bathroom. Be prepared to get to know your housemates while waiting for a delicious, filling breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed the other guests in this relaxed setting. Or have cereal and fruit before if you have to get out early. But if you want to relax you won't regret it. Our hostess asked for our preferences our first morning and was very accommodating (turkey bacon instead of pork & lactaid milk). We felt safe in the neighborhood at all times. Though the block is somewhat dark at night it is only one block off of two very busy street/intersection. Jazz on Friday and Saturday with top artists until around midnight. Friday includes a fish fry. Unfortunately we couldn't attend on either night, but from what we could tell they were exceptional artists and a lively well-behaved audience. If you don't want to hear the muffled sounds of top notch jazz artists, then get a room in the back. So exciting to stay in an authentic historic building! We would definitely stay here again.

I left with my heart and soul full. My husband and I stayed at this gem of a place. We were in town to see The Raisin In The Sun. It was my first time in NYC and I wanted my first experience to be authentic and away from the "tourist" feel of NYC. Debbie and Sankofa Aban did not disappoint and exceeded my expectation. From the brownstone itself to the corner pastry/coffee shop on the corner. For me it was such a connection to Debbie and Sankofa Aban. This connection, particularly to the brownstone and the history behind, was so real to me. We stayed in the Retreat Room and it was simply lovely. We meet a lovely Parisan couple who live in England and another young lady who hailed from Canada. It still resonates in my soul the richness and authenticity of our stay. I want to thank Debbie, Spencer (who waited for us on our 1st day) and just simply everyone for the genuine warmth and love sent our way. We will definitely be back.

This place was wonderful. Being from New Orleans, this was the perfect place. It is just a block from the subway, plenty of parking, the food was wonderful (especially the fried fish on Saturday night), and the owner was amazing. The place was warm and inviting. There was a Jazz performance on Saturday night with drinks and a wonderful Crepe shop down the street. The bed was not the most comfortable, but everything else more than made up for it. We will definitely be visiting here the next time we make a trip to NYC.

Hi, I'm just taking a moment out to look over some past reviews. I'm very happy to have helped in your enjoying probably a much deserved, though out vacation. In doing so, there should never be a concern on whether the bed would be of comfort in a BnB. So, please if anyway at all I could be made aware of which room had a uncomfortable bed needing to be addressed, I'd like to take care of it. I have said before and will say again, our mattress sets are of some of the best on the market. High quality brands. Still there maybe something I'm unaware of I can do to assure a more restful night. We're not perfect, but I don't mine working at it. Thanks for choosing Sankofa Aban BnB.

Lovely brownstone and owner was both warm and friendly. She was more than happy to provide us with needed information about restaurants and public transportation in the area. Room was very comfortable and spacious next to a shared bathroom that was always available to us. Breakfast was good but sparce with one entree the first day and out to a neighborhood restaurant for breakfast the second day which we enjoyed. Wash cloths were not available until requested and room was not serviced after the first night (bed was not made upon our return). We thoroughly enjoyed the jazz and fish fry in the evening as well as the warm hospitality during our stay.

Thank you for your time in giving this review. I certainly appreciate being given the opportunity of clearing up misunderstanding of how we operate. I see that you felt that breakfast was not enough by your standards, but please understand that we are simply a Home-Style Inn we are not a Hotel with a restaurant, with different dishes to choose from. Since I'm the cook it is easier to cook one main dish everyone usually can enjoy together. There is always fruit, and cereal in the Dining Room. This is why I treat my guest to a special Breakfast Outings at the neighborhood Crepe Shop. Not just any neighborhood coffee shop, but actually a authentic French Crepe Shop. Specialty Coffee, Teas, and Pastries. We also have a policy here not to enter rooms, unless asked by the guests. We respect privacy, unless it is absolutely necessary to enter. Plus there is a small extra charge for Room Service not included in rates. Everyone does not need to have that service and should not be charged up front, for such. Also, wash clothes have been known to be a laundry waste being placed in rooms. The small clothes are usually not used by our guest. We give once they're requested. I am glad that you were able to find some enjoyment on your short stay, and hopefully one day you might chance a longer stay. Till then keep enjoying life in Bed and Breakfast.com, BnB's.
